A LOCAL RCMP officer is being honoured with a Community Safety and Crime Prevention Award from the Ministry of Justice.
Const. Angela Rabut, Terrace RCMP community policing and media relations officer, is receiving the award for her work overseeing the auxiliary constable program, being involved with Crime Stoppers, restorative justice, school liaison work and the Ksan Girls Group, a mentorship program that connects female role models with teen girls in positive activities.
“It is terrific and Angela is very deserving. She’s been great for the community,” said Sgt. Michael Robinson, Terrace RCMP ops support NCO.
This year, 22 British Columbians, groups and programs were recognized for their exemplary leadership in community safety and crime prevention, including a Vancouver police officer who trained at-risk youth to run a marathon, a unique anti-gang program in Surrey and a group of Victoria teens who address gender-based violence.
